Amazon doesn’t ship Kindle Fire to India

Although Kindle Fire HD can be pre-ordered from almost 180 countries, some users are not allowed to do it. BGR India reported two weeks ago, that Amazon tablets can’t be purchased by users with shipping addresses in India.

Today, an Amazon spokesperson has confirmed to BGR India that India is not in the list of the 170 countries but asked us to stay tuned.

Amazon has partnered with Redington for distributing Kindles in India. According to BGR India, the deal also includes Kindle Fire HD tablets.

The same thing happened at the launch of international Kindle Paperwhite. Our readers who live in India were complaining that they were able to add the device to a cart, but it was impossible to proceed to checkout. No info on an India-specific Kindle Paperwhite page was displayed.

At least with Kindle Fire things are clear from a very beginning. We checked Kindle Fire HD 7″ and 8.9″. On both pages a message appears:

Kindle Fire does not ship to India
